Ellie Crowe about this book: Megan longs to go into the mysterious Everglades. She knows a storm is coming. But she feels a short trip in an airboat would be just fine. It's not. When a storm destroys the airboat, twins Megan and Sydney and their young brother, Luke, are lost in the wild swamps of the Glades. With Adam, the Indian teenage guide from the campground, they try to find a way out. But there are dangerous animals in the Glades and even more dangerous animal poachers. Megan wants to save a baby orangutan smuggled into Florida. But can she even save herself? An exciting adventure in the wildness and wet.
I love the wild Everglades. There is something so fascinating about ominously lurking alligators. And I love adventure books and books about survival in the wild. Hatchet is one of my favorite books and I like to think that reading about survival would help me if i was ever lost somewhere scary. Maybe not. But, hey, maybe! I hope my readers feel that way too. This book is written for middle school to YA readers who love adventure,animals, and wild places.
